Mark Wahlberg: Why I'm Rooting for a Patriots-Cowboys Super Bowl Matchup


(WEEI) -- Mark Wahlberg grew up as a Patriots fan in Massachusetts but his recent business with the Cowboys could make him change his allegiance.

Wahlberg and his family opened up a new Wahlburgers location at the Cowboys' practice facility and the actor said at Dallas’ training camp on Saturday he “might have to change his "blue" and "start wearing another shade."

"The Cowboys are showing me so much love," Wahlberg said. "I don’t have a Wahlburgers at Gillette Stadium yet. I gotta re-evaluate my loyalty here."

He also said a Cowboys-Patriots matchup would be a "stress-free" Super Bowl.

"That’s going to be a good Super Bowl matchup," he said. "I’m calling it right now."

Wahlberg famously left Super Bowl LI early and missed the Patriots’ historic 28-3 comeback.
